Yes, and no. Yes, every Nintendo Switch console requires an "account." It's basically your ID. No, you don't "technically" need to have an account, but like other services like Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network, the game authenticates the ID with the game. But it's not required to do anything. It just goes like "this game belongs to this ID, and can play this game."
